Dispatches from the Home Front




A number of you have written notes to the church, letting us know what you’ve been up to, thoughts you’ve had, images of hope.  Let’s launch a weekly update of our lives and activities called “Dispatches from the Home Front”.  Have you chosen a project in “Pastor Paul’s Project Project”?  Let us know!  Did you take a beautiful photo of nature?  Share it!  Do you have good news to share, post it!  Send a note to and we will compile all your notes into “Dispatches from the Home Front”.  Feel free to post photos to #newsonganthem on Instagram, too!

Look in your email inbox on Wednesdays for Dispatches From the Home Front 🙂

There’s still time to get a CD featuring some of New Song’s talented musicians!   If you would like to have a copy, email and Patty will deliver one to your home.



If you are lonely, or in need of someone to talk to, consider talking to a Stephen Minister. The Stephen Ministers can not meet face to face at this time, but are available for phone call appointments at no cost.
